    Default NEW CAMERA! Masdevallia Sprinkles ‘Spotty’

    My mom bought me a new camera and I can finally take good pics. It's a Nikon and here's the first picture I took of a Masdevallia Sprinkles ‘Spotty’ (Steven Male x decumana) that I bought from the OSA show. My other blooms on the other masd have faded now, understandably due to the show environments. How long do these blooms last normally? The tiny lip is cool on this one because is flaps when the bloom is moved. I'm amazed how close up the pics can get. I can see things that I can't see with the naked eye sometimes. I'm so technologically behind

    This is beautiful. My masds flowers last a long time, more than 4 weeks. I have a masd Proud Mary whose bloom is similar to yours is in bud right now.

    Nice colors! decumana hybrids I have seen are generally small plants ... one more thing to like about them.
